Feature & Follow (18): Not Read, Not Seen

FF 2012 Feature & Follow #120

Feature and Follow Friday is hosted by both Alison Can Read and Parakunkee’s View. This is a great way to gain blog followers for book bloggers, follow other blogs, and get to know each other. Each week a different question is posted by our hosts and we get to answer. You can find more info about this meme here.

Q: What book (or TV show or movie) have you not read that seemingly everyone else has?

Books: In the YA category, some popular books I haven't read are The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Thirteen Reasons Why, Matched, Wither, Graceling, The Book Thief. Most of these are on my TBR pile, and I even have several on my bookshelf, but I keep finding books to read before them. I did finally start Ender's Game, so that's one bit of progress for me.

TV: Of the popular shows I've heard about out there, a few I've never seen are Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, and True Blood. I'm not a big TV watcher in the first place, so having to commit to a series really pushes someone like me who has a short attention span. I rarely make it through an entire series. I do better with comedic sitcoms.

Can you relate, or do you think I'm missing out?


  1. Haven't read any of those books either. A few of them just don't make it on my radar.

    And wow! Everyone seems to be saying Breaking Bad! I have never watched the show myself, but nor have I heard lots of people talking about it! I find that so odd that so many people are choosing this one and I really know nothing about it!

    True Blood is the only item that I actually watch. Of course I don't have HBO so I wait for the DVDs, and I'm only halfway through season 4. I seem to run out of time lately to sit still for an hour to watch the show...gotta fix that so by Xmas time when I ask for and hopefully receive season 5 I will be ready!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  2. I haven't read any of those books either! Matched is on my desk and I hope to get to it soon!

    I have not seen Breaking Bad or Doctor Who either but I am a Walking Dead junkie thanks to my sister!

  3. OH MY GOSH. I actually never read Wither or Graceling, but 'Perks' is something I really enjoyed so hopefully if you ever get the chance to read it, you'll love it too. Never read Ender's Game yet either, so hopefully it'll be promising-- especially with the movie coming out and all.

    But of all the TV shows, I never seen them. I wouldn't say you're missing out, but I definitely need to catch up on some of those things too so you're not alone on this. Thanks for checking out my post!

  4. I haven't read The Perks of Being a Wallflower, either, or seen the film. I have read Thirteen Reasons Why and Matched, haven't read any of the others though. As for TV, I haven't watched most of them either, so not on your own there! Though, I did watch Doctor Who (only while David Tennant was the Doctor, then jumped ship.)

    Followed back on GFC. :)

  5. Never seen Breaking Bad either, heard a lot about True Blood but haven't seen that either. But then we don't watch much TV so I guess thats why... same with the books although I keep seeing Graceling at the bookstore and it sounds kinda good.

  6. Breaking bad is on my list too, just ordered the first season. Hope it's good. Thanks for stopping by my FF. Old follower.

  7. Thank you for visiting my blog! I am following you back. I watched The Walking Dead over 4th July marathon. I watched the first season of True Blood and just stopped.

  8. I haven't read those or watched Breaking Bad either. I plan to watch it on Netflix though.

  9. Ooh, you have to read Thirteen Reasons Why ~ it's amazing! I will admit I haven't read any of the others though. And I don't watch t.v. so I've missed out on all those great shows too. Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading!!
